    Merlanni,
    no, this morning she came along and asked me whether she should continue where stopped yesterday, and I told her that I'd rather that she continued stopping. She seemed miffed.

    I wasted like 2 hours trying to get bloody Witcher to start on my secondary display... to no avail. Everything that should have worked via Nvidia's nView, didn't. The game kept starting on the primary display no matter what.

    And then I remembered UltraMon and the fact that it could be interfering with nView... I don't recall if I had it set up like that before, but switching primary monitors via UltraMon takes about a second... and then the game runs on the other monitor. :doh:

    Canada made that list, which I think is rather odd, as no one appreciates a good joke like a Canadian! We've produced lots of funny people. For example:

    Jim Carrey, Dan Ackroyd, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, Eugene Levy, Michael J. Fox, Brent Butt, Kim Cattrall, Michael Cera, Sarah Chalke, Dave Foley, Brendan Fraser, Phil Hartmann, Eric McCormack, Mike Myers, Leslie Nielsen, Saul Rubinek, Keanu Reeves, Seth Rogan, and Nia Vardalos, just to name a few.

    Many of those people were born here, many lived here for a long time, but they all have been somewhat successful in the comedy field. I picked the ones from this list people were likely to know.

    Canada shouldn't be on the list. I'd like to see the countries they thought were the most funny!

    EDIT: bear in mind I don't exactly like all the people on this list. For example, were Michael Cera, Seth Rogan, or Kim Cattrall to be run over by bulldozers tonight, I don't think it would be much of a loss to the world. But the fact remains that based on the numbers, both of them have been fairly successful in the humor realm.

    [​IMG] BTA,
    speak for your self, you miserable creature, after all you live in America, a country so unhappy, that the North Korean Happiness Index doesn’t even have a number for how unhappy everyone in America is. Yes, it's that bad. Read it and weep some more.

    It helps to keep people happy when all the unhappy people are, well, executed or locked up. Happy, happy, happy! :)

    [​IMG] Just seen the flat I want to move into next month. It's a one bedroom with actual ROOMS instead of this crappy studio flat. Also the opposite end of town so the roads are much quieter, the pavements are nicer and it's away from all the clubs but really close to the city centre and university.

    It's more expensive though and the water rates are a joke but that's the only downside for something that's otherwise awesome.

    Problem at the moment? I need my mother to be my guarantor and she isn't answering her mobile, the home phone, text messages or any emails and I need her to phone me before six a clock :doh:

    [​IMG] Like who? She's the only relative I have able to.

    Also any large sums of money I have to pay out have to go through her now thanks to the diclofenac episodes and the government agreements to backpay my benefits :spin:

    My weight has been a roller-coaster lately. 3 months ago, my poundage hit the 190s. Last month I started at 173... good job, right? Well, I'm back to the 190s already. Though I have started running every morning, with the wife. She cruises a nice 4 miles in 35 minutes. It takes me 42. Ifeel like a real puss....

    The wife, myself and some friends are running in the warriordash this weekend. 3.1 miles and several obstacles, including crawling through mud pits under barbed wire. And there's nice, German beers waiting for you when you are done! Many dress up for the event, wearing all sorts of outfits from Viking costumes to Fantasy characters, to thongs with twigs and leaves covering private pars. Tons of fun!

    A nice family outing.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 19 minutes and 35 seconds later... ----------

    In my hand I hold a disk that once was fabled.

    15 months ago you would have been carried off with a straight jacket to the loony bin if you still believed in the release of this game.

    Back in the days there was nothing and suddenly there was Wolfenstein. After Wolfenstein came Doom, followed by a game that surpassed them in greatness. You could fly and jump for the first time. It was a hit, millions and millions of copies were sold so a sequel had to be made.

    In such keypoints of time, fate intervenes most cruelly. The game became the laughing stock of the game-world.

    But like a divine ray of light, the impossible was realised.

    So we had to make double sure that we had no bubble gum what so ever in a 50 mile radius.

    Now I look at the disk I wonder, a bit shellshocked, if it is all worth it.

    Do tell, because I wouldn't be surprised if there was a Duke screensaver with "Coming Soon - 2025!" in the box. :D

    Played 2 to 3 hours. It is one of those games you just must play. The reviewers are right. The duke makes it from mediocre to fair.

    50 euro's? No, it still is a fun game so pick it up after prices have been cut.

    It really is 18+

    I'll be heading back to military service for a refreshment exercise that'll last a week. I must say I'm a bit nervous as to what the exercise will be all about since I'll actually be stationed in a medical unit which is something that did not really happen during my actual military service, but hopefully it will be OK. I also heard that there will be a lot mosquitos in the woods I'm heading to right now so that can be a pain. Luckily the weather is getting a bit cooler this week which will hopefully drive some of the pests away.
